5 Reasons to Love This Week's Collection 

1. Soft Pastel Hues

Spring is in bloom! This week's collection is inspired by the soft pastel hues that we seeing popping up everywhere just like the daffodils and tulips. Adding them to your jewelry box is the perfect way to incorporate this timeless palette into your spring style regardless of what is hanging in your closet.

With such wide variety of colors and ways to wear pastels, they are flattering on everyone.

Here are a few ways to wear pastel jewelry and a few fabulous examples of looks from ladies we love:

  • Wear pastel jewelry with other pastels of the same shade for a monochromatic look
  • Wear them with solids or neutrals as a complimentary color
  • Mix them them together for soft but bold color pop

When we think about a woman who always looks effortlessly chic wearing pastels as a neutral, we can’t help but think about the beautiful Stacy Tuschl who wears blush as a signature color:

Another great example of how to style this week’s collection is pair pastels together for soft but bold pop of color. We fell head over heels in love with Bella Rosa’s Boutique’s Floral Trench and we think this is the perfect example of how you can buy a printed piece that actually provides limitless ways to style and accessorize. The soft muted color palette looks fabulous paired with a one pastel accent color or a rainbow of soft pastels.

Be daring with pastels.

A soft color palette is perfect for this time of year, don’t shy away if you crave pops of color and bright accents. We are frequently inspired by Nicole Warne, from Gary Pepper:

Pastels are the perfect backdrop to express your personal style. They even set the stage for a bold, chic, and sophisticated look.

3. Mad for Mod

It is March Modness, right?

If you hang around at VMM, you know we love a good pun. So maybe we don’t know what teams are playing but we do know a thing a two about Mod 1960s and 1970s jewels - clean lines, bold elements, sophisticated but subtle chic, simple color palettes, these pieces are perfect to wear as a statement piece with wardrobe basics like white tees and jeans. Or they create a bold, sophisticated, chic, and sleek style statement when worn with short and long dresses.

4. Timeless Sparkle

VMM is known for their coveted collection of sparkly pieces and this week does not disappoint. If fact, it celebrates two of our favorite types of rhinestones, aurora borealis and watermelon heliotrope.

Aurora borealis rhinestones became famous for the iridescent glow in the 1950s. Invented by Swarovski in the 1950s, the aurora borealis crystal was inspired by the soft colorful glow of the northern lights.

Heliotrope is everything we love about bright colors and even the rainbow.

5. Good Luck Charms

Asian everything and faux jade jewelry were wildly popular in the American costume and designer jewelry world in the the late 1960s and 1970s era. It was bold, unique, and was a modern take on truly a centuries old jewelry tradition.

Faux jade jewelry became a very popular element in design during this era. Green is considered a classy, elegant, and powerful color. It is rich and elegant when set in gold tones. Jade is regarded as the stone of good luck and good fortune and literally has been worn in many cultures for centuries because of the intense powerful properties associated with it.

Traditional designers like Avon, Crown Trifari, Ciner, and Kenneth Jay Lane all used faux jade as part of their high fashion on trend collections during the late 1960s and 1970s. These pieces and styles have become incredibly collectible and are somewhat scarce, too.  They represent a shift in styles during this time period, the introduction of higher quality materials fashioned to look like genuine jewels in a designer setting, it’s everything we love about faux and fabulous designer jewelry.

And of course, who doesn’t feel lucky when wearing jade?

Regarded as a good luck charm and good fortune and set in eye catching unique designs one can’t help but feel prosperous and fortunate, especially because you will receive endless compliments when wearing these unique styles and everyone will be asking - where did you get that, Darling?

Style Tip Jade on Jade! We love this goregous green suit from our friends at Bella Rose Boutique, one styling suggestion is embrace the power of one. We love this bright and beautiful green and know the pieces from this week’s collection would complete and compliment this look.
